Razen improvises live avant-drones and deep listening experiences. These originated from the desire to play music in an ingenuous way, with old instruments, purely based on sounds. Razen is continuously searching for tone colour shocks and a primitive, hybrid sound alchemy. Influences from Renaissance, Baroque and Medieval music mixed with the world of field recordings and 20th century composers such as Xenakis and Messiaen. Razen focuses on live improvisation, therefore a thorough knowledge of the context in which they perform is ultimately necessary and makes every concert unique.

The Living Room XL was a group exhibition in the form of a happening. Sixteen artists were invited to create new work, culminating in fourteen unique 30-minute interventions questioning city life, the border between public and private space and the influences of global politics. The Living Room XL is part of AIR Traces: the experimental archive of AIR Antwerpen’s activities.

THE LIVING ROOM XL is an initiative of AIR antwerpen in collaboration with Studio Start and Brandt vzw, with financial support from Stad Antwerpen, Provincie Antwerpen and the Flemish Community. This website and its content is courtesy of the artists and AIR Antwerpen 2017. Photos © 2017 Alena Schmick, film © 2017 Ilke De Vries, design by Indianen
